All the latest updates and news from the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo, one of Bermuda's leading visitor attractions!
On Monday [April 2], a local vessel reported a “migrating whale found distressed with entanglement in rope or wire” and it was concluded that Bermuda at this time, “lacked the necessary specialist equipment to assist the whale.”
A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre spokesperson said, “A local vessel on Challenger Bank, reported a migrating whale found distressed with entanglement in rope or wire around the creature’s fluke.
“Having advised Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre who relayed the plight of the whale to BAMZ staff Dr Ian Walker, it was concluded that Bermuda at this time, lacked the necessary specialist equipment to assist the whale and was unable to offer further assistance to the animal, it has been discussed with the Aquarium that following this incident attempts will be made to obtain the equipment required should this situation arise again.
